Speedy Asset Services extends VisionTrack video telematics solution04 June 2019

Tool, plant and specialist equipment supplier Speedy Asset Services is adopting video telematics technology as standard on all new vehicles, as part of the company’s commitment to road safety and fleet risk reduction.

The company has installed VisionTrack’s VT2000 connected forward-facing camera on a further 50 recently acquired vans, which will provide Speedy Asset Services with added visibility of any collisions, near misses and harsh driving events.

“We have taken the decision to make video telematics part of our fleet replacement programme, with all new vehicles to be fitted with VisionTrack’s industry-leading road safety technology,” explains Gareth Jones, road risk manager at Speedy Asset Services. “The connected vehicle cameras will help target further improvements as part of our award-winning fleet safety strategy that has already reduced road collisions by 37%, while also enabling us to avoid unnecessary insurance costs.”

The latest roll-out follows the successful adoption of a connected multi-camera DVR system on a fleet of HGVs. The solution has provided all around visibility of the vehicle and shares all captured information with VisionTrack’s cloud-based IoT platform. This has enabled Speedy Asset Services to view HD video evidence of road incidents within second of them occurring, as well as gain a better understanding of driver behaviour to identify areas of risk.

Speedy Asset Services had previously used an SD-card vehicle camera solution within its fleet operation, but the devices required video to be manually downloaded before it could be viewed. In contrast, the video telematics system provides real-time alerts in the event of a collision and access to footage, so Speedy Asset Services can immediately check on the welfare of the driver and prove liability in less than 30 minutes.

“We understood the need for an advanced and scalable video telematics system that safeguards drivers, prevents road collisions and mitigates fleet risk. We are working closely with VisionTrack to take advantage of their unrivalled ambition, expertise, service and support,” concludes Jones.
